Focus on Duration
The size of your faith is not as important as the duration of your faith. When Jesus told Peter “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” He was not referring to the size of Peter’s faith. Peter had just walked on water. That took a great deal of faith. The problem was that the faith did not last. Focus on increasing the duration of your faith and not necessarily its size. “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move”-Matthew 17:20. The problem with many of us is that like Peter, when we see the boisterous winds, we are not able to sustain faith. What’s the solution? Do not look at the boisterous winds. Instead “Look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith”-Hebrews 12:2. Just focus on Jesus no matter the condition of what you see because “we walk by faith not by sight”-2 Corinthians 5:7. When you take in the big picture, you may be overwhelmed. So take it one day at a time. do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself-Matt 6:34.
